As others from Renwick, including Watch Hill. Return via higher public footpath from Watch Hill very wet, maybe lower path might be better?David Gradwell02/11/2017
Climbed up along the ridge from Harside summit, it was a surprisingly long way and quite a lot of height loss and gain. I estimated a round trip of 15km with nearly 400m of ascent. Great views over the lakes and north over the vast expanse of the Alston Moors.dianepick01/11/2017
Evening walk from Renwick in the sunshine. Good path, excellent views.Winterfloodian09/08/2017
Was staying at Melmerby so started there.Took the track from GR 6148 3767 to 6129 4009. Took mainly roads to Renwick. Pleasant climb up to Thack Moor, Watch Hill and Black Fell and then down to Hartside where I had some lunch. Fiends fell and then Little Knapside Hill and then picked up the path at GR 6366 3834 which was a pleasant walk.tsharp06/07/2017
I started from the village of Renwick. A path leads direct from the village to the summit, becoming vague only a couple of hundred feet from the top.peter4lc06/05/2017

Walked on my own straight up and back on the path from Renwick. Cold but calm, snowy on the top. The sun was just setting and the fell was bathed in red light as I approached it. I was heralded back to my car by Renwick church bells. A great little fell to climb after doing Cold Fell in the morning.flockwatcher22/01/2017
Parked in Renwick. Filthy weather on the way : strong northerly wind and rain turning to sleet turning to snow. Much better on the way down. Faint path through the grass from the top of the very good track leads all the way to the summit trig. With Tinside Rigg, done on the same day, recompletes the Nuttalls.Owen B06/11/2016
Climbed solo from Renwick and returned via Watch Hill.dhbond21/04/2016
THIRD CONSECUTIVE CLOUDLESS DAY AT ALSTON BASE CAMP. FOLLOWED NUTTALLS' WALK 9.8 FROM WHITLEY CASTLE UP LONG DRAG TO GREY NAG, THEN EASY WALK TO TOM SMITH'S STONE TOP BUT VERY BAD BOG ONTO BLACK FELL. THANKFULLY NEW BOOTS PROVED TOTALLY WATERPROOF BUT VERY SLOW GOING. THEN HEADED OFF OVER EASY TERRAIN TO NEW TOP AT THACK MOOR AND DOWN TO RENWICK WHERE PICKED UP BY WIFE. GLORIOUS SUNSHINE AND VIEWS ALL DAY.BURGESS28/09/2015
Walk to complete the English Nuttalls with Dad. Final one was Fiend's Fell.AGWilliamson26/09/2015
Solo walk in conjunction with the Tour of Britain cycle race. Parked at Renwick up track to Thack Moor via Watch Hill to Black Hill down to Hartside Cafe. Back along the track from the white house then road.Glenelg10/09/2015
from Croglin. up well made tracks and out and back to Blotting raise. followed tracks as far as Lawyers cross then peat, heather, rough grass and water to Tom Smiths stone passing remains of D.H. venom. Dropped pack at toms and out and back to the nag. Not hard by any stretch of the imagination. just a tad wet and had been a long day. Trig and Cairn embedded in wall mark top lovely evening views. then off to Black Fell with a camp somewhere beyond. the section from Toms to Black fell is about as bad as i can recall. on a par with Armboth fell, Cold fell and Kilhope law. Peat groughs deep enough to hide an elephant. i was knackered by now too so the summit came as a huge relief.. glad i'd done it then and not left it for the morning. trig at the summit with superb views. the way out to Thack Moor is a delight. overnighted just short of watch hill. the following morning was a tad cloudier and the lakeland hills swathed in clouds. but still dry here at least. easy climb up from watch hilstig_nest26/07/2015
Camped on the top. walked in from Hartside.Great sunset over Solway Firth.mick24/07/2015
From Renwick and back, with Penda. 4.4 miles. 2 hours. Windy but clear, very lonely hill. Lots of birdlife though, buzzards, kestrel, curlews, pipits.beorwulf10/04/2015

Did with my sister. Finished the English Nuttalls - AGAIN! I hope they don't find another 2000ft or more hill when I am in my nineties!!!johnjennison10/09/2014
Revisited, from Renwick following tracks all the way to the summit wall before going onto Watch Hill. Small cairn on Thack Moor summit seen last year has now vanished!Fisky Boy10/09/2014
From Hartside up to Black Fell and along to Thack Moor. Fantastic views over to Solway Firth. Doubled back to White Fell and then down and up to the ridge between Black Fell and Tom Smith's Stone. On to the summit and then to Grey Nag, then down to where we'd left another car on the A689. Back to Hartside Cafe in time for tea and scones! Tove's last Hewitt!ruthatlast09/08/2014
W Jenx. Very dry spell, took on the whole group as a fell run tour. Black Fell, Watch Hill, Thack Moor then back to Watch Hill and down into the cut with direct ascent to John Smith's Stone top then Grey Nag. Back over Black Fell. All bog areas dried out, but a very hot day which sapped energy, especially the hags on way back to Black Fell. Hart side cafe very welcome 3.14 hrs later! Great circuit and views.nordicstar26/07/2014
With G. From Renwick > Thack Moor > Watch Hill > RenwickRT197026/07/2014
Left my tent on Black Fell at 8am, reached top via Watch Hill for 9pm. Was unbearably hot due to heatwave and the view was very hazy. Returned to Watch Hill, dropped into Croglin Water to cool off then up the moor to Grey Nag. Quite a shapely peak for these parts.Jake99424/07/2014
Walked in the rain and mist. Easy walk on a good track.denisB5211/05/2014
From Renwick, followed track to top, cloud for last 100 feet spoiled the view.rhalstead21/04/2014
I parked in Renwick and walked up the track from there. Reasonable weather with just a bit of mist on the top. Collected the cache, trig then over the wall to the high point.Father Ted30/03/2014

Fairly painless boring slog up a track from the farm, the highlight being a nice man-made pond 2/3rds of the way up.signyred28/01/2014

Parked short way up lane out of Renwick towards Outhwaite. Bridleway to fork, LH branch soon heads directly to hill. Trig on top but highest point small cairn over the wall. Then across to Watch Hill.Aye Jimmy22/09/2013

From Townhead. Watch Hill, Thack Moor. Easy track most of the way. Only pathless sections were following the wall up the side of Watch Hill and from the top of Thack Moor, but all of this was fairly easy grass tufts.ijpowell06/09/2013
Anice straight up & down on a decent path. Trig point on the summit & dry stone walls. Excellent views on the day. walked with Aly & Mutts.Mc Tango25/07/2013
